Changing the Status of a Production Order

NOTE: This feature is available in the Professional and Enterprise versions of both Spectra and myStratus Desktop.

Follow these steps to change the status of a production order:
  1. Open the production order. Remember, the history for the production order is on the Status Notes tab.

  2. Click Advance Status on the ribbon (or click the "..." button to the right of the status line). The window below will appear.

  1. Enter the date the current step was completed. The default is today's date, but you can change it if necessary.


    If the current status is NOT complete, check Current Status Not Complete at the bottom of the window. This will allow you to advance the status to "Waiting on Client" or "On Hold" without actually setting the current status as completed. See also: Production Statuses

  2. The software will automatically advance the status to the next step and due date. You can choose another status from the drop-down list if necessary and the due date can be adjusted.

  3. Select the user and/or department responsible for completing the next status.

  4. Click OK to save your status changes.

  5. Click Save & Close to save the changes to the production order.


You can also update the status of one or more production orders right on the Production hub! Just select the production order(s) and click Advance Status on the ribbon. The Status Change window will indicate how many records will be modified. Note: The production orders must all be the same type to update them together.
